Our experts use the "Golf Advisor Rating Index," which is a formula that gives newer reviews more weight than older reviews. The Golf Advisor Rating Index ensures that the rating you see on each course's page provides you with the best, clearest picture of the golf course's conditions and service.

As a course works to improve their conditions and provide golfers with an even better experience, their hard work will be reflected in the ratings. So check back often as you search for new places to play!
Using all the reviews submitted by golfers like you, we use a proprietary algorithm to determine rankings and lists. In order for a course to be considered for any lists, they must have at least 10 reviews. We feature all approved course reviews on site – the good and the bad – and no paid results influence these ratings.
Our friendly and helpful customer service team is ready to assist you! Contact them by email at or between the hours of 8am and 8pm ET every day by phone at 1-888-980-5896.
Golf Advisor isn't just for golfers. Golf course operators can also take advantage of the power of ratings and reviews to help grow their business. Visit our Golf Advisor Business page to find out more.
Unless we find the review to be false or fabricated, Golf Advisor typically does not remove reviews from its website. However, Golf Advisor reserves the right not to post or to remove any review or course management response at any time for any reason at our sole discretion, including, without limitation, any review that violates our review guidelines or our terms of use (i.e., includes obscenities, is fraudulent or is in violation of any law or copyright, etc.).
